Going to Minidoka and Heart Mountain, there are so many things to take in. Given the racially charged rhetoric and policies of our current Presidential administration, it is a disquieting time to examine the vestiges of another racially charged Presidential policy. It reminds me that there are few Presidential heroes when it comes to American race relations.

In spite of this ever-present context, there are some particular things on which I also want to focus. In some cases, I’ll be verifying information I already have. In others, I’ll be resolving differences in information I have, or I’ll be seeking out something I’ve so far been unable to find.
I know this will probably be boring, but I wanted to let you in on the details I’ll be seeking…

Of course, there are so many other things that will make themselves known… things I cannot really anticipate. That is one of the best parts of the journey… the surprises.
That’s it for now. Thanks for joining me on the journey. I’ll be back with a string of posts when I return. In the meantime,
Grace and peace to you…
